J.J. Abrams “Believes” John Williams Will Be Back for Star Wars: Episode VII

In a press conference in Germany for Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams was needled about his involvement in that other space franchise: Star Wars. While he didn’t reveal much (it seems he doesn’t know much) the director of both Star Trek Into Darkness and the forthcoming Star Wars: Episode VII did say John Williams would likely return. 

“For ‘Star Wars,’ it’s every early days to know, but I believe that going forward, John Williams will be [scoring] that film...”

Though this isn’t total confirmation, it would make sense for the legendary composer return to a universe he arguably made more famous with his score.

"Arguably"? While it's certainly possible that some other composer might have done as good a job, it's John Williams who did do the music; and that his music was an important factor in the movies' success strikes me as not just arguable but a dead certainty.

I'd be surprised, but thrilled if he did the new one.
